Playlist: 10 tracks pushing drum'n'bass forward in 2013

Read Laurent Fintoni’s piece on how drum’n'bass got its groove back?

If not, you should: the much-maligned genre is currently buzzing with creativity, taking inspiration from outside influences like footwork, dubstep, hip-hop and grime to produce some of its most exciting music in years. In his piece, Laurent spoke to producers like Om Unit, Fracture and Sam Binga, and highlighted music by the likes of Danny Scrilla, Dawn Day Night, EAN and more – but as is so often the case with long pieces, some edits had to be made and not all the producers originally repped in the piece ended up making the final cut.

Across the next 10 pages, Laurent picks out 10 essential modern drum’n'bass tracks (and, naturally, some footwork), with a combination of artists mentioned in the piece and ones that didn’t make the cut, such as Sinistarr [above]. It’s a great accompaniment to one of our favourite recent articles – enjoy.
